It Takes a Team.
Meet Erika, Your Newborn Photographer!

With almost a decade of experience and thousands of babies photographed - we are experts in newborn posing and safety. In addition to Erika there are always one or two assistants helping and sitting right there next to your baby to ensure their safety. We also shoot 100% natural light and do not use flash lighting that is harmful to your precious baby's brand new eyes. Every member of our team also has their whooping cough vaccine and flu shot.



"Love Love this studio! We came here for our newborn session last week. Erika and her staff are as good as it gets. During our design session we went over color selection, look, and feel and the day of the photo session all our sets were ready to go. They really know what they are doing when it comes to taking newborn pictures. You don't have to worry about a thing. I was kind of nervous I wouldn't know how to calm my daughter down as I'm a first time mom and she was 7 days old but it didn't even matter. Erika does most of it all for you. She really knows how to work with newborns and has an eye for the best shots! Everything was seamless from design to photo shoot. I already got a sneak peek and the pictures are beautiful!"

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When Should I Book My Newborn Session?

    We book up several months in advance, since we only accept three due dates per week. Please call us at 310-391-4500 prior to the baby's birth to have your due date reserved on our calendar. If your baby is already born, give us a call to see if we had any last minute re-shedulings. To book a session, we require a non-refundable 50% deposit of the session fee that you can pay over the phone with a credit card.

  • What Age is the Best for Newborn Pictures?

    We photograph newborn babies at our studio between 5-10 days after birth, and at your home up to three months. The reason it is so important to have your baby's portraits captured before they are ten days old, is because babies become much more awake, aware and fussy after about ten days of age. We can work with this in your home, but it is almost impossible to get your baby to sleep deeply enough to be in little buckets and in funny poses after the 10 day timeframe.

  • What if My Baby is Older Than Ten Days?

    We receommend one of two things: either an in-home lifestyle photo session or the next best phase to document after the newborn phase is around 4 months. At this age babies are super smiley, can hold their heads up and are doing cute little baby push-ups that allow us to capture those iconic "naked tushy" tummy-time shots.

  • Is There a Minimum Purchase?

    Yes. In addition to the Session Fee, there is a minimum purchase of $1,295 with each of our sessions. The session fee does not count towad the minimum.

  • Are Digital Files Included with the Session Fee?

    No. Our Collections after the session range from $1,295 - $2,795 after the session and each comes with a selection of prints, digital files, wall art and an album.
